The owner of ‘Scamps To Champs Dog Training’, Derek is a Brooklyn based trainer. Originally from England, Derek’s love and passion for dogs began at a very early age, always having a variety of breeds as family members.
Coming to America has been an exciting time in his life. Joining the Animal Behavior College opened his eyes to the wonderful possibility of using his past background in early childhood development with his new and exciting career as a professional dog trainer. Having this background has helped Derek develop interpersonal relationships between both dogs and their family members as well as develop his class room teaching style.
While completing his internship from the Animal Behavior College, Derek worked closely with his colleagues at his work placement which has given him a vast knowledge base. He continues to advance this by attending multiple workshops including the Pat Miller’s dog aggression workshop and most recently attending a therapy dog training workshop.
Derek is now ABC-DT certified and his next goal is to taking the certification exam to become CCPDT Certified.
